Question 1 Comparison of mortality rates due to cancer

Resolved Question:

Question 1

Comparison of mortality rates due to cancer of the uterus in users and nonusers of supplemental estrogen revealed the following results, where mortality rates are per 100,000: 3.0 (age 45-54) and 17.0 (age 55-70) among users of estrogen; 1.0 (age 45-54) and 6.0 (age 55-70) among nonusers of estrogen. A valid conclusion derived from the above data concerning mortality among estrogen users is:
Answer
The mortality rates for cancer of the uterus are lower in estrogen users than nonusers in both age groups studied.

A causal relationship is demonstrated between the use of estrogen and incidence of uterine cancer.

Mortality from cancer of the uterus rises with age regardless of whether or not estrogen is used.
The mortality rate is lower in nonusers than users because the symptoms of uterine cancer are detected earlier in the former group of women.
